Stampede brand "smoked". Looked goofy with the chrome grille, much better since I painted the grille. It works great, install was very easy.

Are we talking about bumpers or bugshields?

Are you wanting the little piece that just blocks the front of the hood? I personally don't like those as they beat the paint up around the edges and where the rubber sits.

I'm really not sure what I want yet, I figure the 4th gen has been out for a while now so I figured I'd see what you guys have been using and have the best luck with, I want to protect the leading edge of the hood but I don't want what I use to damage it either, I've also been thinking about those 3m clear vinyl guards.

The vinyl guards are good and are almost not noticeable

Mine's been on over a year and 10k miles, no noticeable wear to the paint because mine doesn't have the rubber bumpers on the back side. Only points of contact with the hood are the underside where it bolts on Here's what it looked like before I had the hood repainted

OEM Chrome if you have a chrome grille or OEM color-matched if it has body color compliments .

Thanks all, right now I'm leaning towards a white one or the 3m clear vinyl, let's see what else you got.
